Goodyear and TNO to demonstrate an intelligent brake system

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and Dutch research organization TNO are collaborating on a demonstration vehicle that will test the implications of connected tires talking to the vehicle’s control system, most specifically the anti-lock brake system (ABS).

By connecting Goodyear’s intelligent tires with a vehicle’s ABS system, braking performance can be optimized for the situation and tire state while helping with the steerability of the vehicle. Previous studies by Goodyear indicate that integration of these two components can reduce the stopping distance loss by about 30%.
